Confessions Of A Dangerous Mind
After twelve years of detective work notorious serial killer Ayla Lecter has finally been apprehended by the authorities. During questioning, it became apparent that she had already guiltily confessed her crimes in great detail ten years ago, but only to a local priest. He not only forgave her, but chose to keep the confession secret. Now the police have arrested the clergyman, claiming ten years of police work and five more murders were at least partly the result of this silence.
I’ve encountered with 3 choices
1. “The confessional seal and the absolute duty of non-disclosure are core tenets of our beliefs,” explains cleric Norman Stone, from his police cell. “Our holy texts command that we offer forgiveness to the truly repentant. At that time, the woman was incredibly shaken by the crimes she had committed. I make no apologies for acting as I did. Secular law enforcement is your concern, while my concern is the immortal souls of all mankind. Let’s keep the two separate, shall we?”
2. “The guilty will say anything to save their skin,” growls police officer May Bush, who always plays the ‘bad cop’ during interrogations. “In all honesty, I don’t give a flying ANIMAL turd what this crackpot’s religion tells him. He is an accessory to murder, and because he didn’t call the police like a responsible citizen, five young victims are dead! Religion doesn’t entitle you to break the law. As long as you live in NATIONSNAME, you abide by OUR laws, not your phoney-baloney god’s.”
3. “Holy laws do indeed transcend the puny rules of the mundane!” declares the elderly former leader of The Flying Suns UFO cult, emerging from his underground bunker for the first time in decades. “Laws of faith come straight from infallible divinity, not from weak and fallible Man! All religions understand this truth, no matter who they worship, so all religions must have the right to put their holy beliefs ahead of mortal law. If you do not heed this warning, you will all perish in a fiery hell-storm when the Ancient Discs of Mu return from beyond the stars!”
